During the Channel 5 documentary ‘Beatrice and Eugenie: Pampered Princesses?’ royal commentators Tom Quinn and Angela Levin discussed Beatrice’s reaction to finding out about the News of the World story in 2010. Ms Levin stated that Princess Beatrice was unhappy and traumatised for days.
Mr Quinn said: “Beatrice was at a party held by Naomi Campbell.
“She just kept asking her mother, how did this happen?
“They left the party immediately and effectively went into hiding, knowing that once again her mother’s reputation was about to be completely trashed.”
Ms Levin added: “Beatrice admitted that she spent several days crying.

Sarah Ferguson addressed the incident in a statement: “I very deeply regret the situation and the embarrassment caused.
“It is true that my financial situation is under stress however, that is no excuse for a serious lapse in judgment and I am very sorry that this has happened”.
